I am a mixed media painter based out of Huson, near Missoula.
My paintings are bright yet delicate and they combine realism and abstraction; I seek to find balance, resulting in a poetic atmosphere, inspired by nature and the west.
I am fascinated by light, water, color and movement which account for my choice of subjects. My interest lies in capturing the soul of things rather than the details.
I paint with encaustic wax / mixed media. I make my own encaustic medium from beeswax and resin and create my own colors. My technique revolves around adding, fusing and subtracting layers of wax. I also offer wearable art products and fine art prints of my original paintings.
